about

Saussure as a linguist and Wittgenstein as a philosopher of language are arguably the two most important figures in the development of twentieth-century linguistic thought. By pointing out what their ideas have in common, in spite of emanating from very different intellectual sources, this study breaks new ground.

Editorial Reviews

"Harris's hand in writing this book is firm, vigorous, maybe even driven. His style is wonderfully lucid, his critique is patiently expatiated, and his conclusions are cogent. The result is a powerful effort about the relationship of language to the shape of the modern world."-"Multilingua, 1994 "It is beautifully written, full of apt and witty illustrations and thorough in its scholarship."-"International Studies in Philosophy, 1991 "A welcome bridge between philosophy and linguistics . . . [a] careful exploration of this important influential theory."-The Guardian
